Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados has helped infrastructure fund Actis buy five wind power plants in Brazil from Portuguese utilities company EDP Renováveis for 1.2 billion reais (US$230 million).

Machado Meyer Advogados advised the seller.

The transaction closed on 12 February. EDP sold its 100% stake in the five power plants, which operate under the name Babilonia, to Actis. The windfarms, which are in the northern state of Bahia, have a 20-year concession awarded in an auction in 2015. They started generating power in 2018 and have a combined 137-megawatt capacity.

Actis, which is headquartered in the UK, focuses on emerging markets. It has wind power projects in Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay.
